We had a wonderful time in Villa Retreat. The place is very clean and beautiful. There is a personal touch which makes you feel at home. The staff are very pleasing and never say no to any request. We had an amazing time and would love to visit again sometime in the near future.

This is our second time in Villa retreat .. Will be my first preference if I visit Kodai again . We stayed for two nights with my parents . The view from Classic room with valley view is to die for. It matches with the best valley views anywhere in kodai. However the room badly needs maintenance - chipped flooring...

Right from the time we entered the Hotel, we were spoilt. The room given to us was perfect..... It had the most perfect views that took our breath away. It was in the middle of bustling Kodai but peaceful and tranquil. Shyam and the staff looked after our evry need. The restaurant was great and we really enjoyed the Breakfasts....

Let me start with the good things: really loved the location - next to Coaker's walk, ambience, nice garden, room theme and the initial hospitality. Food was where they were horrible to the core. Lunch: Ordered Kadai Paneer - It was more like some paneer, half cooked vegetables in a gravy so liquid that we stopped ordering Kadai Paneer anywhere...

These guys have taken care of my parents with utmost care and haven't compromised a bit on the service quality. As per the...

Good and neatly maintained, for family it's ideal location whereas its walkable distance to all main attractions of Kodai. Food was tasty and good quality & quantity. I requested for late checkout with minimum charges but it was diplomatically by saying high tariff- during non season they should have extended me grace time for check out... Good trip and stay

We stayed there for two nights. Great location right adjacent to coakers walk. Good view of the valley from the signature suits and dining hall. They serve food in the lawn adjacent to the dining hall which have good view. Please choose signature room 103 if yo are opting for that category. Other two are not that spacious as compared...

It has mind blowing view point and to have a cup of coffee at the view point of Villa retreat is something you will remember for life time. We did not stay here but we have cup of coffee and some pakoda for 2 days at their restaurant and their hospitality was good. Villa retreat has some romantic history we...

We stayed two nights and enjoyed the location and views. Our room was simple but comfortable. Try to book a room with a view as it's the view which is one of the great attributes of the hotel. The small garden terrace looks out over Kodaikanal, the hills and the plains and is a great place to have a quiet...

This place is just beside the Coakers Walk, amazing view. Has a small restaurant, food is good, nothing fancy though. Walkable distance from the bus stop and main market. Be prepared to climb some stairs in this property.
